detailed in the 21 walks book, but can regarded as more variations of Walk 2.&nbsp; They are therefore numbered 2x to link them to 2 &amp; 2A (fully described in book), 2B (the other half of 2 using the A route backwards), other short walks starting at Berkswell station (e.g. 2C could become the next in this series to become Stile-Free, following walk&nbsp;2 to Baulk Lane, but then using Path M191 down to Truggist Lane (and over the bridge we installed on <A href="news-wp-065.html"><STRONG>20-Apr-2011</STRONG></A>) and then to the join 2A at the Greenway.<BR>&nbsp; <LI>Sometime soon I intend to add an index to other short walks such as 13C and 10C (both used for Warwickshire Walking Festival evening walks in <A href="news-wwf2005.html"><STRONG>2005</STRONG> </A>or <A href="news-wwf2006.html"><STRONG>2006</STRONG></A>), and maybe others.<BR>&nbsp; <LI>The Bing Map opens with an "Aerial View" background.&nbsp; You can instead select an "OS Map" background, or several other options.<BR>&nbsp; <LI>The Bing Map shows all the paths in different colours, but at the scale the map opens at the paths often overlap.&nbsp; If you hover your mouse pointer over a path, the colour of that path changes to YELLOW and the label (e.g.&nbsp;1, 2 or 3) for that path lights up.&nbsp; This will make it easier to see the path you are interested in.<BR>&nbsp; <LI>The Bing Map when zoomed in will separate the paths a little, so they look like separate paths going bside the other paths.&nbsp; This will help you see details (and to highlight one path easier as in note above). <BR>&nbsp; <LI>All 3 walks above make use of the new k/g at Site 7 installed on <BR><STRONG><A
